These lovely beads are made by the Krobo People of Ghana, Africa. These are made of recycled glass that comes from many sources, bottles, television screens, computer screens, windows and dishes are just a few of the sources.They are made by crushing glass to a fine powder and heating it so that the particles fuse together. The glass is then poured into clay molds, with a cassava leaf stem used to make the hole. They are baked in an oven and the glass fuses and the cassava stem burns up.Trace white residue often occurs in beads of this type. This is a large source of employment in Ghana and feeds many families while recycling an otherwise disposed of resource.This technique has been used in Africa for centuries.
A nice cool toned set of beads ready for a few additions such as sterling silver, brass, copper or anything that strikes your fancy. Boho, tribal, ethnic, funky, festival options for your creative mind.
